I'm curious to see what other people haven't done. In my game I have not:
- completed a single aspiration
- reach the top level of any career
- drowned a sim
- had an a grade student
- maxed more than 2 skills
- had a household with simoleons above 25k without cheats
- haven't hosted a toddler play date
- haven't had a sim die an emotional death
- been to sixam
- played the detective career

    Used the cupcake factory :tongue:

    For real though, I haven't owned any restaurant or retail stores yet, tried out the herbalism skill and so much more :lol:

    I haven't brought a sim back to life via ambrosia yet. Actually, I haven't done that in TS3 either. Huh. I need to try that sometime.

    I haven't used the cupcake factory either, or tried out the detective career. I've never played with an elder sim, getting ready to do that for the first time here soon though.

    I haven't gone to a festival, played as an alien, or owned a retail store.

    There's a lot of things I'm yet to discover considering I sort of abandoned the Sims 4 for a while but one thing I've never done both in this game and previous ones is play as an alien, vampire or any other non-human life state. I think I maybe tried vampires out once in the Sims 3 but personally the supernatural aspect of the game isn't for me as much as I'm quite interested in that sort of thing outside the game. I do think that the different life states we get in packs seem fun and I suppose it's a tradition to have them in the Sims but I prefer sticking to realism. I might try it out one day though because I've seen so many fantastic gameplay images and stories within the community. :)

    I have yet to...
    - see a sim die or a child taken away
    - play as a ghost or an alien
    - have a male sim kidnapped and impregnated by Aliens
    - adopt a child
    - try out some of the traits and aspirations
    - max the fishing, dancing, mixing, fitness or any of the instrument skills
    - max all toddler or child skills before they grow up
    - go on vacation with more than one sim at a time
    - live in an apartment
    - write the book of life
    - have a teen romance
    - use the cow plant to its full potential (*cough*)
    - work in the detective career (but I won't until it's fixed)
    - play a sim with extreme body proportions (like extremely fat, thin, muscular, huge breats, etc.)
    - have a gay couple (which is a strange thing not to have for a plum hag like me)
    - experience a serious earthquake (unless they don't get any more serious than the ones I've had)
    - brew herb potions (even though I have two sims with that skill)
    - fully cure a disease (weird, I know, but they always seem to be sick no matter how much medicine I give them)
    - see a vampire break in (they do sometimes knock on the door at night, but never come in uninvited)
    - unlock all vampire powers
    - buy several of the minor expansions (including Dine Out, Backyard Stuff, etc.)
    - probably many more things that I don't even know about yet

    I haven't gone to Sixam. I really should get on that.

    I haven't gone to Sixam. I really should get on that.

    Been in the Oasis Springs secret location
    Played the medical career
    Had twins

    There's a lot I think:

    Never finished medical or police careers in GTW
    Collected ALL of anything
    Advanced my Vampire to the highest level
    I haven't cured a Vampire yet (lucky for them- in my world that's terminal >:) )
    Completed the three new careers in CL
    Used the Keyboard in CL

    Umm... nvm, I guess there not a lot- LOL Truly I haven't gone to the top of most skills except gardening, painting, dancing, DJing, and Photography.

    That might be it- I really don't know- HA!

    Had a costume party

    Now that you say it, I don't think I've ever had any party... I've been invited to a few birthday parties and nights on the town, but never organised one myself. Even though I've already created a café that's suitable for all kinds of outings, including weddings. I should get on with it already!

    ... Wait. I did have my own wedding party once. But it's not enough!

    Since I only have BASE, there's a TON of things I can't/haven't done! :(

    As far as BASE things are concerned:

    - Travel into space (though I'm CURRENTLY building the rocketship)

    - Fully complete a LTW

    - Had MY Sim pregnant

    - Gone on a date

    - plant a garden/Cowplant (I can't even find ANY Cowplant seeds :bawling: )

    - (I'm sure there's more, but that's all I can think of right now)

    Until yesterday, I haven't played with aging off.
    Aside from that there is tons I haven't done because I only really started enjoying the game when tots came out now I have it in mind to do it all :D


    Forgot to list some of them:
    Haven't gotten my sims into fights

    Haven't had affairs

    Haven't let my sims play the field

    Never did the doctor career

    Or the detective career

    Or most any of the other careers either

    Haven't taken my sims out on dates

    haven't been in the mine

    Really there is a lot more that I haven't bothered with but will now!

    Sims always surprise me and there are quite a few,

    I haven't been to the hidden world in Oasis Springs
    I haven't run a restaurant
    I haven't had triplets
    I haven't ever mastered a child's social aspiration
    I have never made it to 10 generations in a game (PR is now, at 8)
    There are a couple careers and aspirations I haven't completed yet
    I have never mastered Mischief skill, or successfully had a mean or evil sim (in TS4)
    I haven't completed many collections

    Still so much more to discover!

    This past week is the first time one of my Sims explored space. And he doesn't have career in Science nor was he filling any aspiration goal. I put one in a park I built a long time ago, and anyone I sent there helped build it over time. I finally got around to making one finish it and off he went. There are all sorts of things I haven't done in TS4 but that's true for all the games in this series. It's years later by the time I get around to trying something they meant for us to do, because I never play the way or play everyday, or now, even once a month, so they all remain pretty fresh to me over the years, whether I meant for it to work out that way or not. I never had a hybrid child in any of the games. Like mixing vampire/werewolf and plantsim, lol etc.

    I didn't play the witches in TS2 at all. Had barely started on one in TS3 when TS4 came out and haven't went back to that save since I switch pcs. In TS4 the other month is the first time I found the hermit lady.

    I haven't finished all the potions in that GP, nor have I finished any aspiration, or any career other than the GTW careers, but not the science career, not gotten all the reward perks, nor finished most of the 'to do tasks' after their work hours, or gotten any kid to finish to do list in homework, played any premade, married any townie, nor visited two of the hidden worlds< no interest, been to the alien world, invited over aliens, though I did play an alien, had any Sims on lot die and or play their ghost.

    Haven't killed off any townies with Enrage by vampires, gotten any skill sets of any skills over number five level, (except cooking but not in cooking career or aspiration) haven't explored or visited all venues, in any GP or EP, and on and on. I'm not really a player that would do 'to do lists' and goals at all.

    1. I have never had a Sim in the criminal career.
    2. I have never maxed out the mischief skill or the herbalism skill.
    3. I have never given my Sims the evil,childish,hot headed,hates children,insane,kleptomaniac,mean,slob,lazy,or non-commital traits. (I've played with Sims with those traits but they were either randomly generated Sims or Sims who aged up while I wasn't playing with them.)

    I'm sure there is more but I can't think of any at the moment. I really would like to explore more aspects of the game at some point though :)

    Wow, i need to add to my list, there are a ton of things i haven't done!
  • MonaveilMonaveil Posts: 231 Member
    Some of the things that I haven't done in Sims 4 include:
    - Played a Sim with a Family, Romantic, or Popularity aspiration;
    - Played a toddler;
    - Used the adoption option;
    - Ordered pizza;
    - Run a retail business or a restaurant;
    - Had a decent social event because someone either dies or flirts with the wrong person.

    There's a lot of stuff I haven't used in the game. I've never used the cupcake factory, any photography content, plenty of careers, plenty of aspirstions, plenty of traits (never used a single reward trait), never used the gender options, I don't use mischief interactions, nor have I used the voodoo doll.

    Honestly there's probably more. The Sims 4 has a lot of stuff that I am simply not interested in. This isn't uncommon for a sandbox game where you're given tools and content that you are free to use at your own discretion. The Sims 4 doesn't offer an even mix though, IMO a lot of its content is skewed into the immature category. Mischief is one of the most unappealing aspects IMO.

    1. Completed every collection.
    2. Camped out at Granite Falls (soon to be rectified).
    3. Completed a Family aspiration.
    4. Completed a Social aspiration.
    5. Completed a Food aspiration.
    6. Played a sim from cradle to grave.
    7. Gotten to the top of every career.
    8. Gotten every achievement.
    9. Gotten the prestige awards for every party type (I usually play them in the goal-free mode).
    10. Seen a sim die of emotions in my own game.

    ...Yeah, I've still got stuff to do...
    There is a song I hear, a melody from the past...
    When I woke for the first time, when I slept for the last.

    - plant a garden/Cowplant (I can't even find ANY Cowplant seeds :bawling: )
    @5782341b77vl I heard you can find them while fishing at Sylvan Glades, which is a hidden lot in Willow Creek. Here is a guide to finding it:

    Things that I haven't done yet:
    Never used the photo studio, never had a Sim enter the Detective or Doctor active careers, never went to Sixam (but my scientist is getting closer to that achievement every day!), never had a Sim die of old age (despite having more than 550 hours of playtime :D ), never had a grown cowplant (although an alien Sim I have is currently growing one), never had a baker or mixer Sim, never completed most of the aspirations, never actually used the advanced gender options, never made a Sim based on a real-life person, RARELY made a good looking male Sim.
    And a whole bunch of other things. Still so much to do. I never had a gardener Sim either, just one time the female counterpart of Don Lothario had a little carrot "farm" to have a hobby besides writing and woohooing.

    I've never used any negative traits or gone into the criminal career, but I want to test these out in my current save
